Scotch-Brite™ Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel is a tightly layered, durable, unitized wheel available in medium to hard densities. The wheel works well for aggressive deburring, blending, and finishing on harder metals and for applications where portability is needed. This wheel provides an excellent starting point for jobs requiring the availability of small diameters and narrow widths.
- Durable, aggressive wheel for tough blending, finishing, and deburring on harder metals like stainless steel, carbon steel, high nickel alloys
- High concentration of abrasive mineral is fast cutting and consistently produces a bright finish throughout the life of the wheel
- Flexible, non-woven construction provides controlled abrasive action that helps prevent undercutting or gouging
- Tightly layered, unitized construction can operate in clockwise or counterclockwise directions
- Scotch-Brite™ material resists loading and wears at a uniform rate to provide continuous cutting action

What is the application of 3M's Scotch-Brite Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel, CP-UW?
The Scotch-Brite Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel is designed for deburring, blending and polishing hard metals like steel, stainless steel, copper alloys or aluminum.
How does 3M's CP-UW wheel differ from other similar products in the market?
3M's proprietary grain technology allows sharp cutting points to stay cooler longer. In addition to reducing heat build-up on sensitive materials during grinding or polishing applications, it also enhances surface finish performance resulting in high quality finishes with long lifespan.
What sizes and quantity come in a box of Scotch-Brite™ Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel, CP-UW?
This particular item (CP-UW; Catalog number #61500113922) comes with two wheels per case. Each wheel is 6 inches by one inch by one inch; medium grade (7A), making it suitable for general-purpose use across industries that require precision machining such as Aerospace & Defense or Medical equipment manufacturing sectors.
The Scotch-Brite™ Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel is a versatile replacement for many conventional abrasive products such as rubber bonded wheels and small set-up wheels. It is filled with aluminum oxide abrasive mineral, which is a popular choice among industrial professionals due to its cut-rate and long life.
The aluminum oxide mineral is combined with a tough nylon web, making it ideally suited for producing uniform results. The tightly layered unitized construction and aggressive properties produce a smooth running, fast cutting wheel that runs cool and resists loading.
Aluminum oxide is a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges in use, whereas traditional abrasives, such as garnet, quickly wear down with use. Its high cut-rate, hardness, strength, and low heat retention all combine to make aluminum oxide mineral a good choice in grinding applications. It is suitable on a wide variety of substrates in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.
Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are unique surface conditioning products with abrasives incorporated into non-woven nylon or synthetic fibers. Combining abrasives with the fibers creates an abrasive system that delivers consistent results for the life of the product. The open-web material runs cool and is load resistant, which keeps the abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the fibers.
